Poppin a can of trappin

I ran into this poppin track and I got caught in the wave. While I was drawn in to the sea by its sweeping move I glanced seeing bubbles and blurry images which may have been my life. The moment that I let go time stalled to a stand still – there I was, in audio oblivion.

The gLAdiator duo released their new album in full on soundcloud. Such a nice thing to do – trapsters these days…

Spring is Down Under

Weary from the day and looking for some ol’time easy listening? Just kick off those dusty shoes ruined by the wasteland that is your career. Get ready to lose yourself in simple emotions, rhythm&blues and drown your sorrows in the burrows. 95-minutes-and-19-seconds of pure surfin – whether it be in the asphalt jungle or on your couch, let it loose.

Birds and Beats

Go down to the harbour and watch the banana boats being loaded. Another humid day on this tropical island state. Look at the women carry their goods above their heads and the young drummer play his barrel drum by the market. All this against the back drop of bird songs and a gentle glimmering of the sun on top of turquoise waves out at sea.

Movie night

Ever seen a movie made from a good book read before seeing the movie? For some unapparent reason it seems to be one of the hardest things to make a good movie from a good book.

Ever seen a good movie and read the book it was based on afterwards? Equally disappointing. Something to do with artistic interpretation – but with expressive arts such as movies and books, well at least with those made for mass consumption, you would think the weight was on expression instead of personal impression. Reality too often shows the true nature of such attempts.

Music is another domain – ever seen a good movie and played the soundtrack afterwards? Music evokes the feelings experienced during the movie, the mind working hard at it to connect the dots and at best creating new depth for the meanings of the motion picture. Similarly amazing is that sometimes music can work the other way too. After first hearing a good song you learn it was features in a movie. Growing to like a movie you found based on a song can be pleasing. But the associations that music weaves in our minds to memories of feelings is even more unique.

So here is some music for reminiscing the feelings brought on by a movie – Drive. This track is one among many, however, it captures a lot of the atmosphere and the division of the main character – being a hero and a human being – all carefully orchestrated by the director, Nicolas Winding Refn.

Treasure hunting

Catnapp from Buenos Aires, Argentina, released an interesting track on the Berlin based rec.label IF THE KIDS. It’s a pretty cool track so why don’t you give it a try.

If you can’t get enough of it there are a bunch of remixes on soundcloud. Finding stuff like this just makes my head spin – so much good music in the world. Screw pirate bootie, this is modern time treasure hunting!
